Gluten-Free and Traditional Italian Fare at Porcini’s in Watertown

Rodney Moreira

Porcini’s Italian Restaurant, in Watertown, now caters to customers seeking gluten-free choices by offering a variety of gluten-free dishes that are clearly marked on the menu for easy identification and less guesswork.

“More people than ever are going on a glutenfree diet or have celiac disease, and they find it challenging to order when eating out,” says Executive Chef Rodney Moreira, a native of Brazil. “Porcini’s makes it easy for customers to live a healthy lifestyle and enjoy a variety of delicious foods that work for specialized diets.”

All menu items at Porcini’s are made with fresh produce from Russo’s in Watertown and fresh meat, poultry and seafood from local markets that Moreira personally hand cuts. The open kitchen allows customers to see and smell each dish that is prepared. Porcini’s offers a casual atmosphere with dining by a fireplace in the winter and a garden patio in the spring and summer.
